25,000 Germans gathered together on Monday to fight Islam. Many of them beautifully carried Christian crosses, to express the triumph of the Holy Cross over the Islamic crescent that will soon come! Why aren’t American Christians having these types of rallies! Sometimes I have more hope in Western Europeans than I do Americans. I did a whole video on this, with footage and lots of great photos of the event:
This is from a recent report on the event:
Germany’s growing anti-Islamic protest movement registered its largest attendance on Monday with 25,000 supporters turning out in what organisers described as a tribute to the victims of the terror attacks in Paris.
Pegida, which stands for “Patriotic Europeans against Islamisation of the West”, asked supporters marching through Dresden to wear black ribbons in respect for the 17 people killed in the French capital last week. It was met with fervent counter-demonstrations of as many as 8,000 people and accusations that the group were “misusing” events in France to further their cause.
The German chancellor Angela Merkel has said she will attend a protest organised by Muslim groups in Berlin on Tuesday. “Islam is part of Germany,” she told reporters during a break with meeting Turkey’s Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu. “I am the chancellor of all Germans.”
Pegida started out in mid-October with a demonstration in Dresden attended by about 200 supporters. In early December it attracted 15,000 supporters. On 22 December a record 17,500 attended the movement’s weekly Monday protest in the city.
While continually met with counter-demonstrations, it surge in popularity has shocked established political parties and come at a time which concerns over immigration are polarising the country.
